I think the vocab is going to depend on the scenario in which the creole is
used.   What's the background?

Subject: English-Spanish-Arabic creole

I've been wondering what a creole of English, Spanish and Arabic might be
like. So far, I think that it would have the following consonants

  b   td    kg
f  T s     x~h
m   n
       r
       l
w       j

And the vowels

i u
  a

Possibly with length distinctions.

There might well be a lot of allophony

I think that the definite article would probably be al, but it would not
vary according to gender/number (as in Spanish) or phonological environment
(as in Arabic).

I'm wondering how vocabulary might be selected.
